DLA Piper LLP (US)‘s practice is well known for handling sponsor-side fund mandates, however the investor-side practice was bolstered in 2018 by David Parrish and Nicole Brennig (‘very commercial and responsive‘) joining the Austin office from Jackson Walker, L.L.P.. The firm’s client base includes start-up venture capital firms, American and international sovereign wealth funds, endowments and pension plans. David Goldstein, Richard ReillyYasho Lahiri (‘a superb negotiator and diligent in his work‘) and of counsel Carmen Wong are key names in New York. In 2018 Victor Levy moved to the New York office of Clifford Chance and Richard Ginsberg moved to Winston & Strawn LLP‘s Chicago office; however, in mid-2019 New York-based partner John Reiss joined from Shearman & Sterling LLP, and Adam Tope joined from Hogan Lovells US LLP.
